Yarn: HaldeCraft HandDyed Vonda in "Tangelo" Pattern: Doppelganger Socks by verybusymonkey Started: April 1, 2014 Completed: April 24, 2014 Notes: This pattern is deceptively simple! No cables (twisted stitches and yarn-overs), and much easier to memorize than it seems it would be. The pattern comes with two different stitch patterns to choose from, and it's a front/back thing so you could do both the same (like I did) or one on the front and one on the back. Or switch them on your second sock! Or do one whole sock in one pattern and the second sock in a different pattern! Possibilities...

Off the needles: Woo, Denali!

Yarn: HaldeCraft HandDyed Anne in the former club colorway "Denali" Pattern: Wiki Waki Woo by Adrienne Fong Started: March 2, 2014 Completed: March 15, 2014 Notes: The March project for the 12-in-14 -along over on Ravelry. I love this designer, she's one of my favorite sock designers out there. The patterns look complicated but they're surprisingly easy to memorize. Very fun! I did modify this pattern only in that I made them toe-up, with my standard afterthought heel (it really fits my foot, so why mess with what works for me? Because I'm totally keeping these socks for myself!)

Yarn: HaldeCraft HandDyed Andre in a test skein for “Cinnamon Sugar” Pattern: Maeva by Stefanie Bold Started: January 3, 2014 Completed: January 29, 2014 Notes: Made for the 12-in-'14 -along over on Ravelry; this is my January project. I had a lot of issues with these socks (all, of course, forgotten as soon as I finished them). If you're interested in my project notes you can read about my confunction on my Ravelry project page.

Off the needles: Salty Flowers

Yarn: HaldeCraft HandDyed Andre in a test skein for “How the Sea was Salt” Pattern: Marigold Socks by pamela wynne Started: November 22, 2013 Completed: December 30, 2013 Notes: Even just the test skein for this colorway makes me wish it were a permanent color – the actual one came out even better – and not exclusive to club. Especially since I couldn’t even fit myself in that round of club, and didn’t get one of the final skeins! I has a sad.
